One of the foremost African-American artists of the twentieth century, Horace Pippin came to prominence in the late 1930s between the heyday of the American Scene painters and the ascendancy of Abstract Expressionism.

As art history absorbs the lessons of multiculturalism, this book, based on an exhibition, should launch Pippin (1888-1946) into a well-deserved place in the pantheon of modern American painters. Pippin was a self-taught African American artist who scrutinized his world with visual honesty. His paintings have been previously summarized as "primitive" or folk art "naive" in technique and vision; Stein ( Red Grooms , LJ 7/86) and assorted other scholars bring Pippin's work back into its full artistic worth and provide it with social context. The book is beautifully organized, with essays on the artist's life and times, a superb section on technique, and a reference section that includes chronology, exhibition history, a catalogue raisonne of known works, and an index to the paintings. This intellectually crafted and emotionally appealing look at a black artist's experiences is recommended for both public and academic library collections.
